This is a day for reflection.  It is a day of rest… it commemorates when Jesus was in the tomb.

  The picutre to the left is from The Church of the Holy Seplechure in Jerusalem where tradition holds that Jesus was buried.

  The reading for relection on this day is Psalm 130.

  130:1 Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord! 2 O Lord, hear my voice!  Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy!

  3 If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? 4 But with you there is forgiveness,  that you may be feared.

5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; 6 my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.

7 O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is plentiful redemption. 8 And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities. I Have Calmed and Quieted My Soul…
